SESAC has announced a major change in its royalty distributions. The performing rights organization plans to accelerate domestic/terrestrial radio performance royalties from quarterly distributions to monthly payments, beginning in the coming months. Monthly distributions will also be expanded to other performance platforms later in the year.
“We are proud to provide this accommodation to our affiliates and to continue SESAC’s legacy of providing the best level of service to songwriters and music publishers,” said Pat Collins, SESAC President and Chief Operating Officer.
Always a proponent of technology, SESAC uses BDS tracking to monitor radio airplay for accurate payments and has also implemented fingerprinting technology in its survey and distribution systems.
